for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming. please take this money and bring it back to washington. he said, go back to washington and tell them they need a reality check. we are tired of the overspending and the taxing and taking more money out of the economy. there are real challenges here. i used to live here. i worked and i lived over there. i understand. many businesses are hurting right now. regulatory tax uncertainty is the biggest challenge they have. >> tomorrow will be the one- year anniversary of senator brown's first vote against 22,000 jobs here in massachusetts. i hope everybody who knows someone who is unemployed, every business who would like to see those paychecks to spend in their shops, will remember that. that is how we jump-start the economy. we get work that needs to be done, and we put people back to work. the bill would have cost millionaires

out the accusation, that's like asking the government, how often do you beat your wife? >> i should have had a question mark at the back of it, ali, let's face it, okay? the facts are, ali, no matter how you want to look at this, we had 25 economists polled before this number came out. the average number they expected was about 115,000. not one of them had a number below 8.1. they were republicans and they were democrats. and all of a sudden -- >> i agree with you. >> you agree with that? >> i agree with everything you're saying, jack, and if your question was -- >> i wake up this morning and it's 7.8 with a bunch of asmptions. >> as the best ceo that america has ever had, there are two very powerful things you can say here. one is let's take a look at how the bls, bureau of labor statistics, and the department of labor measures employment, number one. and b, maybe mitt romney should be replacing president obama if he's not doing a good job. but to say there is corruption of somebody cooking these books, why do you do this? for a government in trust of private institutions, that's n
and gentlemen, there's deeper history in what we're talking about with the city government channel. i'm the one that started that, i'm not going to get the hand for that because of same things the housing authority tenants went through 20 years ago. ladies and gentlemen, i am happy, tickled not pink by black right now because most of the tenants are african-americans. i stand here as the czar of the african-american out migration. i am so happy that my supervisor in the fifth district had the courage to come forward for something 25 years ago. we brought the needs of the redevelopment to the san francisco government channel. i can't say it all right now. i am ecstatic. i am so happy that the supervisors are doing something that i call community reform. we're going to show and demonstrate not only that department, but there are several other departments that need to come before the eyes of city government. i got a unique technique call in your face. right now in your face. i have been discriminated against. yes, commissioner wiener, you can yawn all you want. i am so glad kristina stepped forwar

government, but hesitated to make decisions and were forced to rely upon local and tribal militias of varying degrees of loyalty. in late spring, the police were allowed to return to work to help with traffic, but were limited to that only. fighting between militias was common. militias separated -- they appeared to be disintegrating into freelance criminal operations. targeted attacks against westerners were increasing. in june, the ambassador received a threat on facebook with a public announcement he would like to run around the embassy compound in tripoli. when i arrived in february, three teams were on the ground. ambassador katz was forced -- lost one of his teams. the ambassador struggled with renewing the sst beyond april 5. that is ambassador stevens. the second msd team was withdrawn after the departure of critz. restricted from performing security work only and limited only to train local guard force members in july. the remaining msd was withdrawn at the same time the sst was terminated. the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the

? is there a point where the federal government seizes control of the project? dr. ruiz? >> thank you for bringing this up, because it really brings very pleasant memories of my father taking me there to fish and havin picnics with the family. now we're seeing dead fish and a stink that is unbearable. and this is somewhere where congresswoman has failed to deliver. she continues to talk a big game. she promised in her first election that she would fix the sea. 14 years later it has not been fixed. i don't know what stippings more, a broken promise or the sultan sea. in fact, this is a great opportunity right now for us to revive that sultan sea so that we can have it as a hot spot for tourism, so that other children can fish with their fairs, so we can develop geothermal energy and boost our economy. and the way we're going to go about doing it is public/private partnerships with local input and authority so that we can come together and stop this bickering and attack talk and all this other stuff that congresswoman bono mack is so adept at and skilled, but really come up with some problem-solving
. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of law. and i think mitt romney has to do more of that. has he been specific with his plan? he laid five out in the debate, which is more than the president did. that's why independents thought mitt romney did very, very well. >> let me ask you about one of the issues where they differ, medicare. that is a big deal in florida romney says he supports vouchers for medicare, a plan that is not very popular. how does play in florida with all those seniors? >> right now in florida, you've got about 12 million registered voters. 36% who are republicans, you have 40% who are democrats. and then the 24% or the remainder is going to be the most important percentage in america and i think it's 24% who are not registered republican or democrat. these are going to be the most important voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree

declaring war irdlede pscriptiondrugexpaded they are concerned with the lack of accountability in government. in the case of occupy, it's wall street, and guess what -- they are both right. >> he summed it up beautifully. >> when you were running, it was a matter of people getting to call into an 800-number. now we're into this world of social media, where you can tweet something out in a matter of seconds. do you think that would make a third-party iran or any kind of a people's movement easier today than it was 20 years ago when you had to rely on people calling in to a phone number? do you think the computer revolution, which you have been involved since the start, and in particular at the social media revolution of the last several years, should create a situation where you are on twitter, where you can mobilize people more easily? >> sure. >> shouldn't that make the type of solution you are talking about, people demanding change, similar to have? >> that is what we need, and i think that is a good way to do it. >> the problem would be they have the tools today to instantly to mobilize.
was interested in public service and public policy issues and government. >> you grew up in the boston area. what made you want to make the transition and moved to san francisco? what motivated you to get involved in politics question marks before i ran for office, and worked in san francisco as a criminal prosecutor and civil rights attorney. i got to understand how much of a be in san francisco is to the rest of the world for social justice. i spent a number of years helping to grow a small business. i got to understand the innovative spirit in san francisco. at night, i volunteered as a neighborhood leader and as feature of an affordable housing organization. i learned so much about the challenges facing our neighborhoods and the special jewels that are the urban villages we live in. i ran for office because i wanted to serve the city and protect all that is so special about san francisco. >> what lessons did you learn after campaigning for supervisor? >> san franciscans are incredibly interested in their city government, local politics, and making sure that we remain the most amazing city in
might have gone too far and the government should reassert itself in protecting the workers' rights. quayle: the premise of the question is the administration has been lack in enforcement and i disagree with that i tell you why if you want to ask some business people that i talked to periodically, they complain about enforcement of this administration, and furthermore, let me tell you this for the record when we have found violations in this administration, there's not only been tough enforcement, but the most severe penalties, the largest penalties in the history of the department of labor has been led under the violations found. they deserve it and we are committed to carry the the broad question goes to the whole issue of the regulations has a regulation worked on not worked? in my opinion regulation has worked. we've had a deregulated economy and we have produced through the deregulation, the spirit of the entrepreneur ship the individual going out and starting a business. the businessman or woman going out to risk their investments to start a business and hire people. we have p
conservative as katherine made clear, there's nothing conservative about a government that prevents a woman from making her own health care decisions. governor romney talks about freedom. but freedom is the ability to determine the care you need when you need it. freedom is the ability to change jobs or start your own business without the fear of losing your health insurance. freedom is the knowledge that you'll no longer be charged more than men for the same health care. or denied affordable coverage just because you've beat cancer. and at a time when women make up nearly half the work force, and an increasing share of family bread winners, these are not just health issues or women's issues. these are economic issues that are vital and affect every family in america. they matter. when -- when a woman is the main bread winner for her family but takes home less pay for the same work, as a man does because she's a woman, that is not right. when my opponent's campaign was asked if he'd support legislation given -- giving women the tools to fight for an equal day's pay for an equal day's work,
of achievement. i admire that. iticket with him. gov. dukakis and i agree that we ought to have a government trade policy. that they move this country from the no. 1 lennar -- #one lender nation in the world to the number one bar were. the this country is exported to many jobs and not enough products. as i worked to pass a trade bill in the united states senate, they through roadblocks in the way every step of the way. but we passed a trade bill the had this premise. that any country that has full access to our markets, we are entitled to full access to their markets. that means we will stand tough for america and we will protect those jobs and we will push american products and we will open up markets around the world. we will show leadership in that respect. and turn this deficit and trade around. that is the sort of thing that michael dukakis and i will do to bring about a better america for older people. >> senator quayle, a minute to respond. >> senator bentsen did not tell you very much about what gov. dukakis will do. donor do catkins, one of the most liberal governors in america. he
life in of free land, and i live half of my life under government control. what you presented today, it's not only dangerous for women because this last point to take care of them or four people, but it is dangerous for government control over our lives. it's more than any law presented to us before. to you know that according to those lost the government will have control on your account. so if you don't pay what you're supposed to pay, the government will take money from your account. to you know that the doctors will have a limited number of patients that they can see in a limited number of medication that they will provide. this law does not provide prosperity and better health. only freedom and free market, which created this country, wonderful will have the possibility. believe me. i have seen the government is extending its power in my life in romania. if you allow the government to stop there is no way -- to start covering your life, there is no way you will. >> i don't mean to cut you off, but to you have a specific question you would like to adjust? >> to you know all of those
and create jobs. it's plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. now, we think that government taking 28% of a family and business's income is enough. >> okay. those answers weren't exactly full of detail, so let me see if i can help them out. mitt romney would cut all tax rates by 20% and reduce the top tax rate from 35% to 28%. he'd eliminate taxes on capital gains, repeal the alternative minimum tax and estate tax and cut the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. on the other hand president obama would keep tax rates the same for those making less than $250,000. he'd also raise the top two tax brackets to 36% and 39.6% and he has supported the buffet rule. he'd restore the estate tax but lower the corporate tax rate to 28% from 35%. so the choice is yours, undecided voter. but i see a clear distinction with one candidate supporting the rich, the other the middle and working class. now, on to a sliver of life that many see as only affecting one portion of the electorate but it's an issue that often divides us as a nation. number 8, abortion. with romney this gets a bit tricky. you se
of that nature. now, it's different whether there's a government grant, where the market power derives from political authority. and that's true of some of the essential facility cases. stadiums, stadium approvals and the like. but if the facility has become essential through market processes, which is surely the case of google, it represents success. and that firm is entitled to all the reward it can gain. now, greg and bob do a terrific job of showing why the google experience does not fit the scraps of law on essential facilities. but i think they should go further. they should deny that there's any merit to the concept at all. now, i think this is true of other parts of the paper. as i alluded to earlier, much of the paper is empirical. and i learned a lot from it really. there's a lot of detail in it. and i learned a lot. but the -- those responses and that empirical -- making the point that criticism by competitors of google's practices are just wrong on the facts. but i think that that's not enough. especially in representing the chicago school. the failings of the arguments by googl
>>> this morning, targeted by terrorists. >> the government changes its story about that breakdown in bengha benghazi. it was terror after all, not angry protesters, killing the u.s. ambassador. and the issue is front and center at a hearing on capitol hill. >>> on the campaign trail. a new, softer side of mitt romney. his family urging the change, as polls show him closing the gap in battleground states. >>> airport arsenal. a boston man detained at l.a.x., after what border agents found in his luggage. body armor, weapons, even body bags. >>> and snoopy on the silver screen. the big announcement. charlie brown and the gang, in a brand-new movie. >>> good wednesday morning. i'm sunny hostin, in for paula faris. >> good morning, everybody. i'm rob nelson. we begin this wednesday, with tough questions ahead on capitol hill today, about last month's attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya, as well as three other americans. >> the title of the house committee probe speaks volumes. it's called the hearing on the failure in benghazi. tahman bradley is here with a preview. good m
twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who should have acted on available intelligence. blaming those who put their lives on the line is not the kind of leadership this country needs. >> chaffets was instrumental to getting the answers. basically what he says you don't need lots of intelligence when your consulate has already been attacked. when the british ambassad
. >> the idea the federal government funding planned parenthood, they're going to say no, we're going to stop that. >> the obama campaign saying this represents a candidate trying to move to the center. >> like we saw again sort of a shifting towards bipartisanship. >> i'm not going to lay out a piece of legislation here because i intend to work with republicans and democrats in congress. >> wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all these last two years. >> let's get straight to cnn contributor, the sirius xm radio host pete dominick. he's got a good panel. >> thank you, wolf blitzer, for letting us squat in "the situation room" for a few minutes. we have a very important conversation about what we just saw. it's moderate mitt. by the way, i think bill clinton took my unsolicited advice last week which was to get out there on the campaign trail. but, guys, what are we witnessing right now? mitt romney will say one thing in an interview or a speech and then his staff literally walks it back on iran, on tax policy, on health policy and now on abortion. my opinion is,

to live in the u.s. prison system. his attorney asked the government to return two prosthetics taken from him as he flew with other suspects from the uk to new york. his attorney said without the limbs, he won't be able to function in a civilized manner. he fought extradition for years in the uk and europe and is accused in a 1998 kidnapping in yemen, plotting to put a terrorist training camp in oregon and supporting violent jihad in afghanistan. the federal magistrate ordered him held on arraignment for tuesday. two of the men who were flown in overnight with him did enter not guilty pleas at an earlier proceeding. they are charged with conspiring to kill americans in the east african embassy bombings in 1998 which caused the deaths of 224 people and injured thousands of others. two other men accused of fund-raising for terrorism through the internet entered not guilty pleas in a connecticut court. if convicted, he faces life in prison. the defendants are facing trial in american civilian courts, not in military court, as in guantanamo bay, because that was the criteria for european just
book is here comes the black helicopters and un governance and loss of freedom. >> thank you. >> gretchen: the game changing situation of this debate is astounding? >> yes, the media is spinning as obama lost and i think mitt romney won. you think about it. american people never had a good look at mitt romney. the last republican debate was in january or february and many independent and democrats didn't watch the republican convention and many of the democrats and independents didn't tune in and romney that is characterized as a fearsome creature, they saw the real romney and what a reasonable nice guy he is and level head good ideas, i think the country liked him and that is a bond like the one reagan established. that is responsible for the flip. >> gretchen: carter versus reagan? >> that is a key example. carter was winning all in september and all of october. an october 27th, he was six points ahead and one week later he lost by nine and the intervening thing there was the debate. carter's campaign characterized reagan has a bomb thrower who would destroy the world. they
of the people who votes for something, then writes the government to ask them to send us money. so that's congressman ryan from last night. as for mr. biden, he got tangled in foreign policy, specifically the libya killings. martha raddatz grilling him on security shortcomings in the administration's initial claim that the deadly attack was likely a spontaneous reaction to that anti-muslim youtube clip. >> why did that go on for weeks? >> what we were told -- >> by whom? >> by the intelligence community. the intelligence community told us that. as they learned more facts about what happened they changed their assessment. that's why there's also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years who is doing an investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> they wanted more security there. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. >> keeping them honest, there is now sworn testimony that the request was, in fact, made. the former regional security officer in libya second from the left
that neighbors, not just government, should help those who are struggling. >> whether consciously or not, you're really socialized to think, as a mormon, these functions, these kind of welfare state functions, are not government functions. they are functions to be done by the voluntary sector. it's this sort of tocquevillian idea that, you know, people take care of each other at the community level. this isn't what the central government does for people. >> narrator: romney served four years as a bishop and many more as a senior mormon leader. then he decided to turn to politics. >> the reason mormons do get interested in public service comes out of a sense that we have a mission. >> narrator: for romney and other mormons, america holds a special place. >> i think romney has a deep commitment to the united states and to the americas, because mormons do believe it's a holy land and honor the constitution as coming from god. >> we believe that the united states of america is that place that had to be free so that god could bring truth back to earth. and we revere it for that purpose. >> and jos
lies we have heard before. and obamacare is a big government program. i don't think joe can be too aggressive. he doesn't have to be obnoxious. that's not his style anyhow. but he has to take on every single one of those. the other thing i think is is important for joe biden, i believe, that he has got to remember, that this is not for him. nobody is going to vote for him or paul ryan. if you are going to vote for just joe biden or paul ryan. if you want to vote for paul ryan and joe biden, you can't do that. it's not about paul or joe, it's about barack obama and mitt romney. and joe biden has to keep bringing it back to the fundamental choices. move forward with obama or move backward with mitt romney. i think joe has to make that point over and over and over again. and then i think it is important for us to realize that in the past there have been some interesting moments in vice presidential debates. we remember when dan quayle said he had as much experience in congress, and he said senator, i served with jack kennedy, jack kennedy was a friend of mine. sena
